What makes you think we don't have an admin interface at present? :)
In a sense that's what we have been doing with the polls board. It's working but it's not taking off. The polls board has additional advantages in that the topic for thread is defined automatically when he first person clicks on the 'comment on this poll link'. That Mark Waters fellow is a bright boy!
However, if there's a specific group or topic that people are interested in - a la the Nostalgia Board we could try it and allow it to build up naturally as happened in that case - it started out as a discussion forum for some the old Wynne photographs.
We could, for example, switch the roots board which gets a steady stream of posts but is very linear and doesn't allow for answers to individual requests.
We can't really run two main boards in parallel though as both would suffer - it has to be all or nothing for the main board. As we mentioned above too the cost implications of moving away from a threaded page per post system could mean the viability of the site is comprised completely. So until an alternative source of funding appears it's a non starter.
